PSA:My Mother never told me this! Reblog to save a baby Bird:)
This is totally true. Birds of any species have a limited sense of smell and could never detect human scent, or any particular scent, really.
okay, now i know.
Echoing that I read about this on Julie Zickefoose’s blog many years ago (and I remembered the fact that it’s OK to help baby birds better than I remembered Julie Zickefoose’s name…thanks, Google search.)
Also, adolescent birds fall out of the nest and flop around on the ground because they’re learning how to fly! Picking them up and taking them to wildlife shelters is the equivalent of calling CPS because a college freshman is wandering around without her parents!

For the last three decades many Americans have puzzled over a system that gives an R to a movie in which a women is carved up by a chainsaw and an NC-17 to one that shows a woman sexually pleasured. From such ratings one might conclude that sexual violence against women is OK for American teenagers to see, but that they must be 18 to see consensual sex. What message does this send to the kids the MPAA presumably means to protect? —
“You have to question a cinematic culture which preaches artistic expression, and yet would support a decision that is clearly a product of a patriarchy-dominant society, which tries to control how women are depicted on screen. The MPAA is okay supporting scenes that portray women in scenarios of sexual torture and violence for entertainment purposes, but they are trying to force us to look away from a scene that shows a woman in a sexual scenario which is both complicit and complex. It’s misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman’s sexual presentation of self. I consider this an issue that is bigger than this film.”

Today I discovered the The Medical Center for Female Sexuality. After reviewing their site, I have some critiques, which will be stated in the response under the cut. I personally related to what was stated on the site, and, while I do not believed them to be a malicious organization, I find some aspects of their philosophy personally troubling. It is these aspects I will discussion, and nothing more.
In this response, I review their views towards low libido and lack of sexual desire, as well as give personal accounts as an asexual individual who was given mental and physical evaluations for lack of libido. There is reference to sexual abuse and masturbation below; while not detailed accounts of either, but rather passing remarks, please do not read if you will personally be triggered by such discussion.
